Friday morning.
Jen Houston - the Nation's Sexiest College Girl contest winner and an ASU student - isn't sure how far she'll go when she makes an appearance on the highly controversial "Howard Stern Show" Friday morning.

The business and communications sophomore is slated to be a guest on the program at 3 a.m. on Sirius Satellite Radio station Howard 100, with a replay for the West Coast scheduled at 6 a.m. on Howard 101.

"I don't really know what to expect," Houston said of the show and Stern. "Hopefully I'm just going to go in there and have fun and relax."

Houston won the Nation's Sexiest College Girl contest last spring. The contest was conducted by StudentBody Calendars - creators of Tempe12 - and pitted 64 girls against one another in a single-elimination tournament.

The majority of applicants were from Arizona, but other states were represented, said Ben Leis, co-owner of StudentBody.

Wat r u up 2 l8r?

ASU's lecture halls have become the new Internet cafes, music stores and gossip spots, thanks to technology updates.

With many college students owning cell phones, laptops and MP3 players, potential distractions are spilling into many classrooms in the forms of text messaging, iPods and surfing the Internet.

Bush brings out supporters, protestors

President George Bush's visit to the Valley drew Republican supporters as well as about 400 war protestors to Scottsdale, where the president attended a fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Rick Renzi Wednesday morning.

The $500 per plate breakfast fundraiser took place at the Camelback Inn to benefit Renzi, a Republican who represents northeastern Arizona.

Niklas Lemke has proven he can win just about any collegiate tournament he tees the ball up in.

After winning his first collegiate tournament at the Illini Invitational last week and displaying another strong performance at the PING Preview (tied for third), Lemke is playing his best golf as a Sun Devil.

"All the pieces are starting to come together," Lemke said. "I know what I need to do to play good every tournament."

In every tournament this season, Lemke has been in contention, and in every tournament he has played self-assured golf.

"After Chicago, he's playing with more confidence," ASU coach Randy Lein said. "He's hitting it so good."

A perfect example of Lemke's confidence aiding him in tough times was at the PING Preview during the final round Wednesday.

On The Cover: When love hurts

Jeremiah Armenta / THE STATE PRESS
We've all seen the images on the 5 o'clock news - women and children, beaten and bruised, living in shelters to escape their violent boyfriends and husbands. They're horrible, but they're also a stereotype. Men aren't the only ones who abuse.

On a night that she will never forget, Christina Castillejo took a knife out of the kitchen cabinet and contemplated committing suicide.

Trapped in her abusive relationship, the now 20-year-old secondary education major felt scared, worthless and alone. When her partner woke her up and threw her out of her bedroom in the middle of the night more than a year and a half ago, Castillejo reached her breaking point.

"It seemed like the only way out at the time," Castillejo says.

She had never thought about killing herself before. She didn't make the fatal choice that night, either.

Bentley is cruising the road to stardom

Micah Bentley has more in common with Michael J. Fox than his sheepish smile.

The singer/songwriter from Peoria recalls wanting to perform ever since he watched Fox play the song "Johnny Be Good" in "Back to the Future."

"When I saw that, I knew I wanted to rock out like that someday," Bentley says.
